The Volkswagen Jetta has been in production since 1979. It was first introduced as a 4-door sedan and was later upgraded to a 5-door station wagon. Multiple models have been produced over the years with some featuring an I4, VR5, VR6, or I5 gasoline engine that could kick out between 67 and 197 horsepower depending on the year manufactured. This was transmitted through either a 3-7 speed automatic or a 5/6-manual transmission. Some of the special edition models included the Jetta GLI, Jetta GLI Edition 30, Jetta TDI Cup “Street”, and the Jetta 1.8 T Sport.

Online stores that offer aftermarket automotive parts comprise a large collection of Volkswagen Jetta light bulbs that cover headlight bulbs, LED bulbs, turn signal bulbs, and many more. Some of the most trusted manufacturers within the industry today include PIAA, Oracle Lighting, Lumen, Vision X, etc.

The VW Jetta headlight bulb size chart allows you to find the most appropriate replacement bulb size for your vehicle’s lighting system. You may wish to replace your headlamp bulb with a HID or Xenon headlight kit or some Light Emitting Diode or SMD bulbs in place of your interior lighting bulbs.

All of these processes are detailed within the Volkswagen Jetta headlight bulb replacement guide. It combines all the bulb size and replacement guides that you need giving online visitors a free resource that saves them time. Make good use of the replacement guide whenever you need to change a burnt out light bulb, install LED light bulbs, replace your headlight bulbs, or install a new HID conversion kit.

The information is available to all online users but provides no warranty. It should, therefore, be used at owner’s risk. Make verifications whenever you’re replacing your VW Jetta headlight bulbs to confirm that you have the right bulb sizes, wattages, and voltages.

Aftermarket Light Bulbs: Upgrade Options

• Open your VW Jetta hood.

• Locate the large round plastic covers behind the headlight headlamps. Twist them to remove them.

The red circle above represents the cover on the passenger side.

Above is the cover on the driver’s side.
• Once the covers are removed, locate the headlight holders made of grey plastic pieces.

• Twist them to release and remove the headlight assembly.
• Pull the old bulb out of the housing without damaging the assembly.
• Note how the bulb is connected to the assembly. The setup looks like a household electrical socket with the electrical connectors present.

• Connect the new bulb without touching its glass parts. Push it into place by its silver part.

• The bulb assembly has TOP written on it. This is the part that should get into the lighting unit first. Turn it for it to click into place. Make sure the bulb sits straight before covering it with the plastic cover.

• Once done, you can cover the setup with the large plastic cover.
